Artist / Personal Statement
“Our work is the result of collaboration, going beyond the conceptual sense, to include working together on the same canvas. We began creating in this way while working with persons at Forthspring Community Center on the peace line in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The peace line is a 40’ wall that divides Protestant and Catholic neighborhoods. As we facilitated art and creativity workshops, we became aware of the common elements of both. We begin all of our paintings with a prayer that is inscribed on the raw canvas, becoming part of the work.

Creating art in this way, as in the reconciliation process, involves listening, respecting, trusting and being authentic with one another. There is also a shared balance of power. While one person may make a decision about what stroke and where, the power remains balanced.

Through this process, we created paintings that neither of us would create alone. When we look at our results, we see evidence of our individuality, as well as the presence of a third dimension–more than the sum of two parts. It is so satisfying that we can hardly describe it. We talk a little during the process, but work out most issues through nonverbal communication. One thing we noticed is that we don’t paint over or paint out something the other has put down without letting the idea (or stroke or color) live for a while, and then see how it fits into the whole. When we have learned all we can from the painting we begin a new dialogue.”
